I am only changing the format of the file so it loads, any differences between QUCS & QucsStudio are beyond the scope of the converter.
I have looked at the rotated components but can not figure out how it works.
It only converts the latest version QUCS files as that is all I have to test.
If need to convert an earlier version just edit the first line in the file or load into later QUCS & re-save.
Not may people have VB6 , but I will put the code online when it has been fully tested.
Sorry, I must have dropped the wrong link the zip is not latest version now.
This should be the correct link for V0.11
*.dpl files now included in the files list for convert.
MS SE definition now exclude my file (until I make some significant change)

Converter V0.11 , Just fixed a few things…
Thanks for testing, there are some things that we need to correct & tidy up after load, it took just a few minutes to get my A3 PV sim working after load. There is not a comprehensive file format document so I have to analyze differences between saved sheets of the 2 programs.
The app is not intended to be a full converter, but just a “get it to load” .
If anyone identifies a specific format difference I should be able to implement it in format converter.
Yes there some QUCS equation convention that QS V3.2.2 does not use, but its easy to correct them. (eg… PlotVs, V1.V, )
I did a test with the document border.
Looking at the file the line showFrame=1, If I change it to showFrame=5 & reopen it is restored to correct sheet size. For some reason it is not being saved
This is a big one for me !, I don’t understand why this would be removed as being able to choose where data files are located is fundamental to using a good app, & QucsStudio is a very good app.
I don’t store my data files on the root C: drive, D: is for all my data, makes backup a breeze , if I get a drive full the OS is still happy. I don’t have data cluttering up my boot partition image backups.
Please reinstate the data home folder select option, it will be immensely appreciated.

Ok, I have made a draft QUCS –> QucsStudioV3.3.2 scg .sch file converter.
Have tested on my files, but still need to do some tweaking to get sch to sim. The acid test it it loads without error.
Just put the app in a folder with sch files for convert, out files will have append’d filename.
What I had to tweak after loading sch in QS: Some components are 90deg. rotated, text newline is not, some variables need correction – (in sweep, Diode EGTA value set to “Normal”, Formula differences etc…) easy enough to find with sim error report.
Any probs just feedback

I would not mind writing a little converter, but I don’t have enough detail of the file formats between the 2 programs at this time.
I am assuming the QUCS format had some problems for QUCS Studio to need a new structure ?
I have about 11 QUCS projects & 18 schematics that would be a lot of work to convert manually. (my main prob with QUCS is I can’t pdf print[font size issue])
